After experimenting with some stitches we began to transfer our house designs onto calico squares

The children then simply stitched the outlines as a starting pointIMG_5762DSC_0329

 

As they grew more confident they used more complicated stitches to add more detail FullSizeRender-3

And add scraps of material for details. DSC_0346FullSizeRender-4 FullSizeRender-5

Sessions have been calm and peaceful as the children find this work extremely therapeutic. It demands great concentration.DSC_0340

It’s lovely to see how their designs gradually translate into a final product.DSC_0343 DSC_0345DSC_0360

Crayons and pastels were used to add detail and blocks of colour to designs. Buttons and beads created more three dimensional effects.

We have used the AccessArt website for inspiration at the start of each session.DSC_0385 DSC_0387 DSC_0388 DSC_0389 DSC_0390 DSC_0391 DSC_0392 DSC_0394 DSC_0395 FullSizeRender-6 FullSizeRender-8 FullSizeRender-9 FullSizeRender-10 IMG_3790

As the houses got to a finished point we used thick card to create a standing mechanismIMG_3867

Our houses could standIMG_3868 IMG_3869

and begin to form a street.IMG_3872 IMG_3873As the children finish they will work together to make a village installation so we can photograph all the houses together before we send them off to accessory to join the larger installation.
